Praised for her awe-inspiring ability to mix vibrant patterned fabrics, antique furniture, and collectible art, Anna Spiro has worked tirelessly throughout her design career to create compelling homes and spaces for her clients. This beautifully illustrated book, Anna Spiro: A Life in Pattern, is a source of inspiration for readers and admirers throughout the world of Spiro’s colorful and visually complex style.
Describing her singular design ethos, Spiro says, "I love to create rooms that spark emotion and people want to linger in... spaces that are rooted in tradition, yet unique in their execution. It’s important for me to use only the highest quality so that our designs endure the test of time—quality over quantity. The end result is a curation of disparate objects brought together to create an interesting, layered, and inspiring space that defies the boundaries of dull yet respects the basic principles of classicism."
From mood boards to finished rooms, this exploration of Spiro’s design philosophy gives readers the framework to create fiercely unique, surprising spaces that sing with individuality.
